Surprising no one, Jay Feaster announced this morning that Sean Monahan will not be returning to junior this season. The 19 year old rookie has had a blazing start to his career offense-wise, but the fact that he doesn't look overwhelmed at the other end of the ice is probably the reason the club has decided to keep him around.

It was the sort of game that tends to happen in Phoenix - slow going with offense and flow hard to come by. The Coyotes play a restrictive, disciplined system under Dave Tippett which tends to turn things into a grind through the mud. The Flames, playing in their second night of a B2B and lacking one half of their top defensive pairing with Giordano out due to injury, struggled to find their footing through a majority of the evening as a result.

After a scrappy win in Los Angeles, the Calgary Flames hit the road once again as they engage in the fourth game of their five-game road trip. Tonight, they visit Arizona to play the Phoenix Coyotes.
This is the first of five meetings between the two new divisional rivals. By sheer coincidence, all three of Calgary's visits to Phoenix will be on the back end of back-to-back games on the road. The two teams played three times last year, with Calgary winning two of three and the home team winning every game.

Smarting from a pair of losses in two earlier games in California, the Flames headed back south to Los Angeles hoping that the City of Angels would finally give them a better ending than their games with Anaheim or San Jose. And moreover, the team's coaching staff probably hoped for a better effort level from their club, especially after recalling a pair of new bodies hoping to get into the line-up.
Oh, and Mike Cammalleri joined the Flames for this game. That may be important later...
